FLORA INDICA. 91 to Concan, Kandesh, and even the mountains of Orissa, and in greatly diminished numbers to the hills of Behar, whence a single species reaches the base of the Hima- laya in Garhwal at Dehra. The forms characteristic of the Madras and Malayan peninsulas respectively are scarcely intermingled in any part of these regions, the number common to the two being only six, of which three are common to Ceylon and Malaya, and three are found in Khasia or the eastern Himalaya, as well as in Behar. Few Anonacea rise to any height oil the mountains, as might indeed be expected from the tropical character of the Order. In Ceylon they are found nj> to 6000 feet, and in Khasia np to 6000. In Brazil, according to St. Hilairc, their greatest elevation is 4000 feet. As about a fourth part of the Indian species are scandent, it is curious that no scandeut species has yet been described from America. It may also be observed that- in America one-ovuled species predominate, whereas in Asia the majority are many-ovulcd. In India the species of Anonacees generally inhabit dense forests, and no representatives occur of the many shrubby species which in Brazil clothe the cam$os, or open grassy plains. In addition to the published materials regarding this Order, we have had access to a number of drawings and descriptions of Pcnang species made many years ago by Sir W. Hooker. We have also found in the Hookerian Herbarium many useful re- marks by M. Planchoa, who appears to have studied the Order with care: these are chiefly identifications of species; but several of our,new genera have also been indicated by him, though without any characters being given.
